Description

Eliot Porter masterfully created color photographs of the New England woods to pair with the writings of Henry David Thoreau. Both Porter and Thoreau, although they lived a century apart, worked endlessly to  preserve nature and protect it from man made interference. The finished  "collaboration" arrived in an era when environmental causes were not as prominent in the public consciousness, yet the book became an overnight  publishing success that lasted many decades in multiple print runs and formats. First published in 1962, this book has been often referred to as the very first coffee-table book ever published!
